Escape Work By Playing The Great Coffee Break

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!

You can escape work, in more ways than one, by playing The Great Coffee Break from Eight O’Clock Coffee and Escape the Rooom

If you didn’t know, I love escape rooms. I’ve reviewed a number of them. So when I got a chance to play one, and get out of work, it seemed like a sign from above. Well really it was an e-mail with a link, but the meaning is in the value we place in it so roll with it. The Great Coffee Break is a digital escape room from Eight O’Clock Coffee and Escape the Room. Players can play The Great Coffee Break to escape work, which is the goal of the game and also a mental escape from work, by going to www.GreatCoffeeBreak.com. Or by scanning any Eight O’Clock Coffee bag with the Shazam app.

The escape room is beginner level but is still a lot of fun. I beat it in under 5 minutes (humble brag), but I am a seasoned escape room artist (escape room escape artist?) so don’t feel bad if you take longer. My only hint will be that The Great Coffee Break is not only an escape room but also a lesson in the art of making a great cup of coffee. I’m also happy to announce my time is faster than Mario Lopez and AJ Calloway, who you can watch play here:

Not only is it a fun, and informative, escape room, The Great Coffee Break is also a contest that will give players a chance to win a year of free groceries! The contest runs from June 17th to August 11th.  If you’d like to see the official information, I’ve attached the press release below from Eight O’Clock Coffee, or you can get straight into the game by going to www.GreatCoffeeBreak.com

 

MONTVALE, N.J. – Eight O’Clock Coffee, America’s original gourmet coffee, today announces the release of The Great Coffee Break: a digital escape room game that people can play for the chance to win a year of free groceries! The Great Coffee Break is the first Augmented Reality-triggered digital game designed by Escape the Room and can be launched by scanning any Eight O’Clock Coffee package with the Shazam app – or by going directly to GreatCoffeeBreak.com. Set in a fictitious animated roastery, players will solve coffee-themed puzzles to help bags of Eight O’Clock “escape the roastery.” The Great Coffee Break will run from June 17 through August 11, 2018, and eight people will win the grand prize: free groceries for a year.*

Since 1859, generations of Americans have been connecting over Eight O’Clock – enjoying rich, smooth coffee as they share conversations, celebrate special moments, and play games together. The Great Coffee Break will provide consumers with a new way to experience their love of coffee and gaming by leveraging the escape room trend that has grown exponentially in recent years.

Players of the Great Coffee Break will explore different virtual rooms within the roastery to find clues, solve puzzles, and complete the mission. Eight O’Clock Coffee’s game is designed to facilitate the satisfying feeling of discovery that players experience in physical escape rooms – which may be the reason that they have grown in the US from 22 in 2014 to about 2,300 today.

“With the Great Coffee Break, we are tapping into one of the hottest emerging trends in a way that is meaningful to coffee drinkers and relevant to today’s lifestyle,” said Michael Scalera, Senior Brand Manager at Eight O’Clock Coffee. “Our fans tell us all the time that enjoying Eight O’Clock Coffee is key to their day – and it’s certainly key to solving the Great Coffee Break. Plus, while people are ‘escaping the room’ they’ll have a chance to escape their grocery bill for a year.”

“Eight O’Clock Coffee has long provided a meaningful way to bring people together, as does Escape the Room – so putting our brands together was a natural fit,” said Victor Blake, Founder and CEO, Escape the Room. “Bringing both of these experiences to life virtually in a way that makes sense for a solo player was my primary inspiration for The Great Coffee Break game. I’m thrilled with how the game turned out, and I think people will really enjoy playing…hopefully with a cup of Eight O’Clock in their hand.”

Scalera adds, “The Great Coffee Break is a game, not a true reflection of the process at our roasting facility in Landover, MD. We have to keep some secrets, after all.”

The Great Coffee Break promotion runs from June 17, 2018 through August 11, 2018 and was conceived and executed by The S3 Agency in Boonton, NJ. The game is being supported by in-store and digital advertising, social media, and public relations outreach.

To play the Great Coffee Break and for complete rules and details, go to www.GreatCoffeeBreak.com.

*Each Grand Prize of is a year of free groceries, defined as $8,000 awarded in the form of a check. No purchase is necessary to enter. Open to legal residents of the 50 United States or D.C., age 18 or older.
